MMFF 2016: Collection of Reviews and Feedback (Die Beautiful)

Except from the numerous awards it got in the 2016 Tokyo International Film Festival, Die Beautiful is truly an amazing and one of a kind addition to this year’s festival.

The film is produced by Regal Films, October Train Films, IdeaFirst Company. It stars Paolo Ballesteros, Joel Torre and Gladys Reyes.

Setting aside the past rules and allowing this film to contend is one of the few changes the new committee did to this year’s festival. If this film was to be submitted last year, it probably won’t be able to be nominated for Best Film (I believe that this film will be able to get that nod).

Die Beautiful received a Rated A certification from the Cinema Evaluation Board.
